Book Review: Unashamed

Unashamed by Lecrae is a raw and real autobiography of a man who knows the depths of a torturous life and the healing that is found through faith in Jesus Christ.

unashamedThe book takes you into the reality of the long-term destructive nature of physical abuse, sexual abuse, illicit drug and alcohol use, and growing up without a father. Wounds that time in itself does not heal but tends to only result in a deeper festering infection of the soul. Through flowing with such heavy topics, the book doesn’t become graphic and certainly doesn’t glorify the lifestyle.

Lecrae slowly guides you through his journey out of a world of destruction and into a world with healing in Christ. The book gives the hope of healing from the inner heart on out without the illusion of a quick-fix from the wounds and consequences of past actions. The book leaves you with a picture of a man being healing and growing in Christ, far from perfect, but full of hope and progress.
